Wine @ Dreams?

Recommended Posts

Shoot, I cant remember the name of the house wine.

 

But it was def drinkable. I wouldnt go buy cases of it, but I sure drank plenty of it there and didnt hear any complaints. Most of the male guests in our group are scotch drinkers tho.

 

Alot of the females who normally drink red, drank white but because of the warm temps and array of seafood.

We found the white and red house wine to be pretty decent. Like Erika mentioned, it wasn't incredible or anything but definitely good enough to drink. We also mainly drank red (a)because it was warm, (b)lots of seafood and ©the wine was super chilled so it kind of masked the "non-amazing" taste :)

Very good question I was curious about that too. Do you think it's worth it to pay to 'upgrade' I guess to a bit nicer wines for the wedding reception? Or will guests just make do?

Like you Tammy, we're from San Francisco, so our guests are used to *very* nice wine, and I'm just wondering for the reception only if it would then be worth it to upgrade to something nicer. Any idea about cost? What about a champagne toast? I can imagine that the champagne is not so tasty?

This is just my opinion...but stay away from the house red and white wine at Dreams unless you are itching to have a hangover the next morning. I'm not a wine enthusiast either...but it was nasty. I think your best bet would be to pay and upgrade for the better quality wines on their menu (which I did hear from our wine enthusiasts was decent) or skip the wine altogether and enjoy the mixed drinks (which I highly recommend!)

I mentioned this thread to my mom and now she is convinced we should upgrade the wines. Probably mostly for her benefit, but most of our family will drink wine so she feels its important. Also she told me she'd pay for it!

 

Before I contact Mariana just wondering if anyone has any info on the prices and what the choices are?

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
